The Shepherd

At a couple of days notice I was asked to make Abigail a Shepherd outfit for her school nativity play. I did not have time to see her so kind of guessed at measurements and grabbed a couple of metres of Thimbleberry fabric from my stash to make the robe and a band for her head covering. Then added a Tea-towel, belt made by my Japanese friend, toy lamb and friends walking stick. Luckily it all fitted well.

Yesterday was the performance at Irthlingborough Church, where 118 children all took part. Abigail sang and performed with the others and narrated a part of the act. It was a wonderful afternoon full of the Christmas story.
